About the Book
Partway through a silent meditation retreat, one attendee has a puzzling encounter with a dead man which shatters the monotony of his daily routine. When an old TV turns itself on one night and the dead man appears on the screen, a young writer’s reality starts to bend in startling new directions. His new companion preaches unorthodox wisdom that blurs the line between earthly pleasures and spiritual awakening— delivering a series of lectures that baffle and titillate with their straightforward love of sin. The young protégé becomes obsessed with this phantom, staking out the TV room at the end of each day in order to catch a glimpse of the elusive guru behind the screen. Their conversations are by turns playful and irreverent— and always thought-provoking. In the end, nothing is what it appears to be.
